Bill Paxtons family is suing Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for wrongful death of the actor.
The actor died of a stroke almost one year ago following a heart surgery for aortic aneurysm fix.
The "Apollo 13" star's family is suing surgeon Ali Khoynezhad - as well as the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he performed the operation - for wrongful death, court documents obtained by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reveal.
"Bill Paxton and his family trusted the physicians and staff at this medical facility but instead Cedars-Sinai betrayed their trust", said Paxton family attorney Bruce Broillet in a statement to press.
Paxton is survived by his wife of 30 years, Louise Paxton and their two children, James and Lydia.
A spokesperson for Cedars-Sinai was not immediately available for comment, but the hospital did issue an earlier written statement, saying that it was prohibited by law from discussing individual cases.
The death certificate showed that Paxton had undergone surgery on February 14, 2017, to replace a heart valve and to correct an aortic aneurysm.
"Defendants. misrepresented and/or concealed information relating to the risks of surgery and care that would be provided and/or failed to adequately explain the proposed treatment or procedure and/or failed to disclose that [Khoynezhad] was going to use a high risk and unconventional surgical approach with which he lacked experience and which was, based upon information and belief, beyond the scope of his privileges", the suit contends.
The complaint added that Paxton suffered multiple complications and that Khoynezhad was not in the operating room at the time.
Furthermore, they say Khoynezhad neglected to provide continuing care after he left and caused a delay in treatment and further cardiac damage by not returning to the OR after being notified of what was happening to Paxton.
In addition to "Apollo 13" and "Titanic", Paxton also appeared in "The Terminator" and "Twister" and starred on the HBO series "Big Love".
The actor, born in Fort Worth, Texas, was starring in USA broadcaster CBS's Training Day series when he died.
